In my life, there has been so many crazy things that have happened to me which I eventually learned a lesson from. I think I could share quite a few stories with you. Believe it or not these are all true!
This weeks lesson is why I will never run away from home again.
When I was about five or six, I had a fight with my mom about something stupid. I think it was that I did not want to do my homework. Anyway, I was really, really mad at my mom. I was so angry that I decided to run away. I went upstairs and started to pack my bag with all of my favorite toys. My mom said nothing and tried not to laugh, even packing me a lunch. I soon made my escape out the front door and snuck around the side of the house making my way to the back yard. As I started running down the hill, I tripped and fell on the ground. I realized that my leg was stuck in a hole and the hole was expanding slowly causing my little kindergarten body to start to sink. I slowly started sinking little by little holding on to the grass for dear life. I screamed thinking that I was going to fall all of the way in and never be found. My brother, who was three years old at the time, heard my screams and found me. He thought that I was just joking with him at the time and did not believe me when I said I was sliding in. My brother eventually ran to get my mom. She didn't quite understand what she was looking at and just thought I tripped and was pouting there on the ground. When she realized she couldn't see one of my legs she totally freaked out as she saw me sinking. She soon pulled me out. The whole was so deep that my mom could not even touch the bottom of the whole with a broom stick. I was terrified and told her that I will never run away again. The next day she called the sewage company to fill in the hole that had developed over a drainage pipe. After that day, I kept my promise and never ran away again.
So kids, next time you think about running away is the answer remember that you may fall into a sink hole and never be found again.
